happy birthday beautiful america...

The American flag does not fly because the wind moves past it. The American flag flies from the last breath of each military member who has died protecting it. American soldiers don't fight because they hate what's in front of them...they fight because they love what's behind them.

Hey girl! I was out of town last week and I'm only just now finally getting caught up on some blog reading. Sounds like you and Laura had a wonderful week together. . . isn't it amazing to have just one person in the house for awhile? So different--but good.

And this post--oh, this post took my breath away, nearly. To think that many HAVE given their breath to protect us and our freedom. . . it's awe-inspiring, isn't it?

Love you, girl. Hope you're having a magical summer.
